The Advantages of a Master Key

Business and home owners who are tired of needing to carry around a large ring of keys to access every area of their home or business can turn to a professional locksmith to provide them with just one key that is able to open every lock they need access to. This type of key is referred to as a master key, and can be created by re-keying the locks which are already installed on your doors. These locks and the keys which are used to open them are referred to as a master key system. Using a master key system a home or business owner is able to have access every lock at the location, or even multiple location, without the need to carry around a large key ring. However, the benefits of a master key system do not stop with the convenience of just one key for yourself.

Having a master key system installed, especially at a commercial building, can also help you to get a higher level of security. Not only are you able to have a single key which can be used to open every lock that is a part of the system, but you are also able to delegate individual lock access to lower level employees relatively easily. This allows for the business owner and other higher level managers to have convenient access with one key, while ensuring that lower level employees get the access to the areas of the location that they need. By creating this separation, business owners and manager are able to create accountability knowing that only authorized personnel are able to access specific locks.

What is a transponder car key?

Transponder car keys are a standard for many vehicles produced today and have been since the early 2000’s, however it is rare that a vehicle owner would know what their transponder car key physically does. It is important for car owners to know this information so that when they do go to get replacement or duplicate set of car keys that they are well prepared and knowledgeable about their specific vehicle. Going into your service experience without proper knowledge can have you being taken advantage of by less reputable key dealers or service providers.

Transponder car keys allow for added security which was not possible with a standard car key. Inside of the casing of a transponder car key is a computer chip which must be able to properly “transpond” to the car’s internal computer in order for the vehicle to start when the key is turned in the ignition. The security benefits are fairly obvious, jiggler keys and hot wiring for vehicles with transponder car keys were eliminated, in addition to the threat of someone copying your existing car key.

With a standard car key which does not have a transponder chip inside of it, an individual who has access to your key can have it duplicated and then easily steal your vehicle. If you have a transponder car key then this would not be possible, since the key must also be properly programmed to the vehicle in addition to being cut properly to the car’s ignition. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle programming may be possible on-board, or can require the assist of a programming machine.

Where can I get replacement transponder car keys?

There are two main choices that you have for service when you need a replacement transponder car key for your vehicle. Those choices are between a local car dealership, or a professional local locksmith. If you choose to have service completed by your local car dealership, you will first have to get your vehicle towed to their location, which only increases your total cost of service. Most dealership also only offer service during normal business hours, so if you need a replacement car key during the weekend or overnight; you can be stuck without a vehicle for some period of time.

Your second option is to choose a professional local locksmith to complete the replacement of your transponder car key. Choosing a mobile professional locksmith like Pronto Locksmiths cuts out the need for an expensive towing trip. A locksmith can come directly to your location to provide you with a replacement transponder car key. Pronto Locksmiths has the tools necessary to cut and program many of the transponder car keys which are on the market today. Since Pronto Locksmiths is a 24/7 service provider, there is no need for you to be stuck without your vehicle just because you can not find a professional to complete service for you.

When presented with these two options, the choice is clear. Choosing a professional locksmith to complete the replacement of your transponder car key not only saves you money on an expensive towing charge, but it also allows for you to get back out the road with as little delay as possible. If your transponder car key replacement needs happen to occur in Southeastern Queensland, you can rely on the professional service from Pronto Locksmiths to be able to get your vehicle back out on the road again.
